A Guaranteed annual income : evidence from a social experiment by Philip K Robins( Book )

A Guaranteed Annual Income: Evidence from a Social Experiment brings together the first accounting of evidence on the impact of the Seattle/Denver Income-Maintenance Experiments (SIME/DIME) on participating individuals and families. It is based on a selection of papers delivered to policymakers, program administrators, and researchers at a conference held at Orcas Island, Washington, in May 1978. The conference, sponsored by HEW and the State of Washington, represented the first effort to disseminate to a wide audience the findings emerging from early analyses. The book is divided into four

Financial incentives for increasing work and income among low-income families by Rebecca M Blank( Book )

20 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This paper investigates the impact of financial incentive programs, which have become an increasingly common component of welfare programs. We review experimental evidence from several such programs. Financial incentive programs appear to increase work and raise income (lower poverty), but cost somewhat more than alternative welfare programs. In particular, windfall beneficiaries -- those who would have been working anyway -- can raise costs by participating in the program. Several existing programs limit this effect by targeting long-term welfare recipients or by limiting benefits to full-time workers. At the same time, because financial incentive programs transfer support to working low-income families, the increase in costs due to windfall beneficiaries makes these programs more effective at alleviating poverty and raising incomes. Evidence also indicates that combining financial incentive programs with job search and job support services can increase both employment and income gains. Non-experimental evidence from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and from state Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) programs with enhanced earnings disregards also suggests that these programs increase employment, and this evidence is consistent with the experimental evidence on the impact of financial incentive programs

Would financial incentives for leaving welfare lead some people to stay on welfare longer? : an experimental evaluation of 'entry effects' in the Self-Sufficiency Project by David E Card( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) is a large scale social experiment being conducted in Canada to evaluate the effects of an earnings supplement (or subsidy) for long-term welfare recipients who find a full-time job and leave income assistance. The supplement is available to single parents who have received income assistance for a year or more, and typically doubles the gross take-home pay of recipients. A critical issue in the evaluation of SSP is whether the availability of the supplement would lead some new income assistance recipients to prolong their stay on welfare in order to gain eligibility. A separate experiment was conducted to measure the magnitude of this effect. One half of a group of new applicants was informed that they would be eligible to receive SSP if they stayed on income assistance for a year; the other half was randomly assigned to a control group. Our analysis indicates a very modest exit
Do financial incentives encourage welfare recipients to work? : initial 18-month findings from the Self-Sufficiency Project by David E Card( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) is a research and demonstration project that seeks a solution to the increasing poverty and welfare dependence of single parent families, who often face the choice of continuing on welfare or working for wages that may pay less than welfare. SSP provides a third option: it offers to supplement earnings of single-parent income assistance recipients who have received benefits for at least one year, provided they leave the welfare rolls and take a full-time job. This report analyzes the SSP's impacts on employment, earnings, and welfare receipt by comparing a group of SSP-eligible persons to a non-SSP control group over the first 18 months of SSP eligibility. Results are presented on a monthly and quarterly basis. Variations in impact by program generosity and family size are also noted
Do financial incentives encourage welfare recipients to work? : evidence from a randomized evaluation of the self-sufficiency project by David E Card( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on a randomized evaluation of an earnings subsidy offered to long-term welfare recipients in Canada. The program -- known as the Self-Sufficiency Project (SSP) -- provides a supplement equal to one-half of the difference between a target earnings level and a participant's actual earnings. The SSP supplement is similar to a negative income tax with two important differences: (1) eligibility is limited to long-term welfare recipients who find a full-time job; and (2) the payment depends on individual earnings rather than family income. Our evaluation is based on a classical randomized design: one half of a group of single parents who had been on welfare for over a year were eligible to receive the SSP supplement, while the other half were assigned to a control group. Results for an early cohort of SSP participants and controls suggest that the financial incentives of the Self-Sufficiency Program increase labor market attachment and reduce welfare participation
The limits to wage growth : measuring the growth rate of wages for recent welfare leavers by David E Card( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: We study the rate of wage growth among welfare leavers in the Self Sufficiency Program (SSP), an experimental earnings subsidy offered to long-term welfare recipients in Canada. Single parents who started working in response to the SSP incentive are younger, less educated, and have more young children than those who would have been working regardless of the program. They also earn relatively low wages in their first few months of work: typically within $1 of the minimum wage. Despite these differences, their rate of wage growth is similar to other welfare leavers. We estimate that people who were induced to work by SSP experienced real wage growth of about 2.5 - 3 percent per year - a rate consistent with conventional measures of the return to experience for similar workers
